The party ship sets sail from Pier 40 at West Houston Street at 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 20, and returns to port at 9. You can choose from two tiers of ticket options -- general admission ($50) and VIP ($70). Both include unlimited sampling from all distilleries, a souvenir tasting glass, live music, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, and the cruise; the VIP ticket gets you access to the Captain's Lounge, a private VIP deck located on the top level of the ship, which will include a private bar. You'll also take home a VIP gift bag.
Each level of the ship will feature live entertainment; look for sets from the jazz quartet the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn and local New York City DJ Tim Martell.
